Virginia International Tattoo
Tickets are currently not on sale.

For centuries, the cry “Tattoo” echoed throughout Europe—first a call by to innkeepers to “Turn off the taps!”—and then as the name for a grand display of military bands and drill teams. The legendary Tattoos of Edinburgh and Nova Scotia are now rivaled by the largest Tattoo in the U.S.—our own Virginia International Tattoo. Mounting a mighty spectacle that changes every year, the Virginia International Tattoo summons more than 800 performers including fife and drum corps, bagpipers, military bands, precision drill teams, and performing ensembles ranging from step dancers to motorcycle stunt drivers. A salute to international friendship and an emotional call to the love of country in us all, the Tattoo is an unmissable celebration and a highlight of the Festival every year. Audiences come from across the U.S. and around the world to the show that the America’s premier tourism organization has named the Number One U.S. destination for travelers (American Bus Association Best of the Top 100 Events in North America).
